The Great Apron Swap


After I posted the little apron post a few weeks back, Angelina (from Pioneer Beauty ) suggested doing an apron swap.  I thought it sounded like fun, but since I had not put one of these types of things together before, it needed a little figuring out on my part to be sure I "could" put it together.

I talked to Roxy (living from glory to glory ) who, you might say, is my apron partner :) we both decided it sounded like fun; and interestingly enough, Roxy just posted the sweetest post about aprons, so check out her post . You can register on my blog or Roxy's, by leaving a comment that you would like to be a part of the "Great Apron Swap".  Sign up as a follower on both blogs, leave your name, e-mail address, and size preference (S, M, or L), and agree to send an apron to your swapping partner, once we have partnered the names.  At the time of the name partnering draw, we will give you the name and e-mail address of your partner, after which, you will collect size preference from them and their address and give your size preference, and address.  You will then send aprons to each other accordingly. You will have a month from the time of the posting of the draw. You may make the apron, or purchase a vintage apron from yard sale or antique sale, which ever you prefer. If you want, post your aprons on your blog to show what you make or find and after all is done, each one can  post of their prize. Happy Aproning.

What a lovely idea! I wish I could take part, but i'm only at the stage of having decided that over the winter I'm going to make my first apron. Watch this space!

One Question...Can I post about it as well..?

Pam said...

Anne, if you still want to participate, you can send one you have or one you find at a second hand store or antique store or as we call them here yard sale or garage sale. Just find something you think is cute, and you can do it.

Angelina, yes, by all means post it, that would be great.

Thanks girls

Oh this sounds like a lot of fun! I was wondering where I would find time to make an apron but then saw that we could get one 'ready-made' so that might be the answer.

As long as it's OK to join from outwith the US, that is!

Pam, please include me. I bought an apron....sadly, I haven't sewn my own so it'll be a bought one.
But I'd love to be included nevertheless.
